Always locally sourced, always fresh. Taking you around the world in 80 words or less…

… The Yankees beat the Orioles in Baltimore last night, 7-2, to take the early series lead. The Nationals bested the Cardinals, 3-2, and the Washington D.C. faithful witnessed an MLB playoff win for the first time since the launch of the Ford Mustang…

… The NFL played some football games. Brady > Manning, Everyone > Vick, Age > Newton, Health > Griffin III, Sanity > Jerry Jones and Eli > One Trillion Gold Coins. Sorry, lost my sense of objectivity for a moment.
